Inmate Money

Each state correctional institution has a Commissary that was created to provide a bank type account for inmate money and for buying things not issued to inmates by the correctional facility.

How to Send an Inmate Money

Friends, family, or other people may add funds into these Commissary accounts by sending it by Western Union and the U.S. Postal Service.

Via U.S. Postal Service: An inmate’s family and friends are able to send prisoners funds by way of the mail and have to send it to this address and do so in accordance with the rules listed below:

The funds must be in the form of a money order that is made out to the prisoner’s full committed name and complete eight-digit register number. It is advisable to use a postal money order, since all non-postal money orders that are processed through the National Lockbox will be subject to a 15-day holding period, in which the prisoner will not have access to the funds. The Bureau of Prisons will send back money orders that don’t have appropriate prisoner information but only if the envelope you sent it in has an adequate return address. Cash and checks won’t be deposited to the inmate’s account so don’t send any checks or cash.
